joie de vivre

Some days you wake up (before the alarm) to blue sky and a fresh breeze, and you just know it’s going to be a good one…

A morning spent outdoors building dens.

A snatched lunch outside, sun on my face and the wind in my hair.

An hour of coffee and cake and laughter with a friend.

This enormous bunch of purple sprouting broccoli for 20p.

Proper English Coxes. At last… (I wait for this all year, more even than first asparagus or first strawberries- somehow the tart crunch of the first apples never disappoints)


Small Girl telling me all her thoughts without interruption from her siblings.

A glimpse inside That Boy’s head…

Another sunset. I can never see enough sunsets.
